Last night, I planned to have all my cleaning done before Chris got home from hunting. I had coffee ready for us to just sit down and drink once he got home... Dinner (shrimp, sauteed zuchinni, salad) was ready too. As I was cleaning, I noticed my dishwasher had water standing in the bottom. I decided to run a rinse cycle to see if the water drained out. Nope - there was even MORE water standing in the bottom after the cycle ran through. So... I pull everything out, get out the instruction manuals, and bring up the Repair Clinic website. (It's a great little website that will walk you through fixing nearly any appliance)
When Chris got home we had a quick dinner and then the fun began. He (and I) originally thought we could just clean out the drain in the bottom of the dishwasher. Nope. He ended up having to pull out the entire unit (after draining it by hand) and unhook the pump. There we found the culprit. A large piece of the white core from a head of lettuce. And you would NOT believe all the CRUD that somehow builds up in a dishwasher! It was SOOO disgusting! Of course, our HARD water doesn't help! So, thanks to my super handy hubby, my dishwasher is now clean! And works! I'm so proud of him!
Now I have a great appreciation for plumbers - and totally understand why John (my BIL) has QUIT the plumbing business. It's a mess! I'm sure to have a plumber do all that would have cost $150. Thank the Lord Chris isn't afraid to try to fix something... and he's quite good at it too.
...so much for my quiet evening with a cup of hot coffee...
I'm not complaining. I'm just grateful we discovered the problem before we had a major leak! Thank you Lord! Chris wasn't happy that I took a picture - he said it's not one of those happy times he wants to remember. But he kept a good attitude about it and did a great job!
Thank you Sweetheart! I love you and I'm proud of you too!

I posted a link to this blog on Yahoo! 360. In the blog, I stated I planned to stick it out with 360 and use this as a backup. Now I'm having second thoughts. Oh, I plan to stay in contact with all my pals - I'M NOT GOING ANYWHERE! They can't get rid of me that easily. LOL I love the friends I've made on 360. There is a closeness there I can't explain.
So why would I have second thoughts about 360?
Well, I've been running around on http://www.blogger.com and I'm loving what I see. Not only can you change your background colors, fonts, etc. You can also change the format of the blog. If I decide I want my blog on the right, I can move it there. Posting pictures and videos is SO much easier on this blog. Oh yeah, and you can add several authors to your blog. This would allow others to post blogs - kind of in a forum format. The list of pros continues. Oh, can't forget the fact there are NO advertisements on this blog unless you allow it.
I've still not made my final decision... and I'm sure I've commited some type of unpardonable act by considering another website. I wish I knew everyone was open minded to something different... and it doesn't have to be THIS website - although I think this one is pretty cool. I know and understand that 360 is special - I won't even try to argue that. But it's the people - not the website that makes our relationships so unique.

WOW THAT WAS SUPER EASY TOO!
My upload speed is rather slow so this actually took a while, but as far as posting - very simple. No need to upload the video to the internet and then post in your blog. Just click the video icon, browse, and upload. Automatically imbedded in your blog! Now THAT'S cool!
